Training courses will be organized for employees, employers, businesses, cooperatives, agencies, and organizations to raise their capacity in the fight against forced labor.

Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam has signed a decision approving the implementation plan of the Abolition of Forced Labor Convention (Convention 105) of the International Labor Organization (ILO).

Under the plan, the Ministry of Labor, Invalids and Social Affairs (MoLISA) will coordinate with ministries and agencies to disseminate the Convention and related domestic legal regulations among workers, employers, people, agencies, and organizations.

These entities will also review, adjust, amend current laws or issue new regulations to seriously and effectively comply with the convention.

Training courses will be organized for employees, employers, businesses, cooperatives, agencies, and organizations to raise their capacity in the fight against forced labor.

The MoLISA will issue guidelines on implementing the document from 2021 to 2023; building a database in support of the work, along with mechanisms of inspection and supervision; and handling violations during the implementation from 2021 to 2025.

The ministry will also boost cooperation with countries, international and non-governmental organizations during the implementation, which will be reviewed in 2025.

It is responsible for strengthening cooperation with other countries, especially those with similar political, economic and social conditions, international organizations and non-governmental organizations to exchange information and obtain technical assistance related to the implementation of Convention 105.

The MoLISA will comprehensively evaluate the implementation of Convention 105 in the first five years by 2025 to adjust solutions to effectively deploy Convention 105 in Vietnam in the next stages.

Convention 105 on the abolition of forced labor is one of the eight fundamental conventions of the ILO. It is similar to Convention 29 in the group of international standards on the abolition of forced labor (Vietnam has acceded to Convention 29 in 2007).

On June 8, 2020, the National Assembly of Vietnam approved a resolution ratifying the accession to the ILO's Convention 105.
